About the event

The Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 1800s was a reaction to the mass production of the industrial age. While many will associate the name William Morris with this movement, not many will know of Eirene Mort, a co-founder of the Society of Arts and Crafts in New South Wales. She is credited with being one of the first to use Australian motifs and materials in the decorative arts. Speaker Lyn Pointer will outline the history of this movement, highlighting the impact of women such as Eirene Mort, May Morris and others. Lyn will also refer to Leila Perry, the first woman to live at Miegunyah, who studied woodworking.

Time: 1.40 pm for 2 pm start

Cost: $10 members and $15 non-members (includes afternoon tea)
